MinuteKey makes the world's first self-service key duplication machine. The MinuteKey founders spent several years fine-tuning the technology to create a highly accurate, reliable and easy-to-use key-cutting device. The finished product is a high-tech achievement, combining innovations in robotics, electronics and software engineering. MinuteKey has several patents pending protecting these innovations. The current company was established with funding from prominent angel and venture capital investors, and today MinuteKey machines are located in high-traffic locations of some of the nation's largest retailers.
